No One Excluded Because of Inability to Pay Our goal is to ensure that its services are accessible to all members of the community. The criteria for eligibility are based on family situation and income. Rates are assessed using a sliding scale and based on a percentage of program fees.

Call us. We really do care.

A Friendly, Caring Atmosphere, and a Whole Lot of Fun We believe we all need a place to belong – a place where we genuinely care about one another. A place where we pull together and treat each other with kindness, open communication, and support. We welcome and include people of all backgrounds, races, religions, ages and abilities. We value community. The Tri-Town YMCA nurtures children, supports families and strengthens society.

Developing Character and Values Along the Way This is reflected on a day to day basis throughout our programs in the character building skits performed by the children during camp, the recognition given to children noticed making the right choices in the Y’s Kids program, and the Everyone Plays – Everyone Wins attitude in our Youth Sports programs.

We are the YMCA. We care about your children Office Hours & Location Monday - Friday 9:00 am – 4:30pm

Feeling Good Light Exercise

Note: Field Trips are subject to change, including the day of the week Ages 55+ This is a slower paced coed fitness class designed for older adults, age 55 and up, who want to maintain flexibility and mobility without the faster rate of other fitness classes. No floor exercises are done. The class incorporates the use of chair exercises, exercise bands, light weights and stretching movements. This is an ongoing class.

My daughter is 28 years old and we still enjoy many special memories formed during our 6 years in the Father/Daughter Indian Princesses program. We would not have the close bond we have today if it weren't for that program. All the fathers in our group, and many are still good friends to this day, feel the same.

Request for Reduction of Fees

TRI TOWN

YMCA

If you could make a difference in the lives of the children in our community, would you?

It is the Tri-Town YMCA’s goal that its services are accessible to all members of the community, and that no one is excluded because of the inability to pay. The criteria for eligibility are based on family situation and income. Staff will have the discretion to take into account additional factors such as family illness, care of aging parents, single parent families, etc. Changes in family size or income must be reported; not doing so or reporting false information could result in the cancellation of assistance. Rates are assessed using a sliding scale and are based on a percentage of program fees. Funds are donated through the annual Strong Kids support campaign. The ability of Tri-Town YMCA to grant assistance is therefore dependent on the availability of those funds. All information obtained in this application will remain confidential.

It will not matter what kind of house I lived in, How much money I had, Nor what my clothes looked like.

It has been a real struggle raising my son without his mother. Financial problems have also forced us to change our living arrangements a number of times. My son was withdrawing from others and I became concerned. A health professional told me that a few weeks of YMCA summer camp would work wonders for him, and they were right. We are very thankful that there are people out there who donate to the Y to help others out. Summer Camp Dad
